New FS driver (and support for a new OS).

Hi, all. I have ported GRUB to the AtheOS operating system
<http://www.atheos.cx/> (or was it the other way around? I'm not sure :)
and written a GRUB filesystem driver for the native AtheOS filesystem.
I also modified the kernel to make it MultiBoot compliant and
everything works nicely. I can boot AtheOS directly off a native
partition using grub. GRUB rules! :)

My question now is how to get this port into the regular source tree
(if possible)? Should I just mail a diff here? Or is there a contact
person I should send this requests to? I could not figure it out by
looking at the homepage, all I found was pointers to this list :)

I'm also wondering if the filesystem driver must follow the GNU coding
style? I guess that whould be the preferred style, but since much of
the code (esp. structures and such) was ripped from the original FS
sources (and since I like to be able to read my code after I write it :)
it follows the AtheOS coding style instead. Whould this be a problem?
This ofcourse only applies to the FS driver. The (very few) changes I
have made to the original sources do ofcourse follow the standard used
in the rest of the modified file.

I have checked the port into the AtheOS CVS repository, so if someone
want to laugh at it you can find it at:


Thanks for a greate bootloader!
